Evaluate command

Constructs and runs a Client command. The evaluate argument values are concatenated into a single string and run as a Client command.


evaluate {&var|'string1'|"string2"|&&function} ... 


  • &var is a previously defined macro variable.
  • string1 and string2 are single or double quoted string literals.
  • As of Build 69, an invocation of a Debugger Client &&function may also be used.

No blanks are placed between the argument values when they are concatenated, so you may have to add blanks with quoted string values.

Here is a macro definition that makes heavy use of the evaluate command:

# historyButtons.macro: Assign extrabutton<extrBtn>-<extrBtn+3>  # for history traversal  # Usage: macro historyButtons <extrBtn>  extraButtonBar main  set &bnum = &argstring  evaluate 'mapButton extrabutton' &bnum ' previousHistory'  increment &bnum  evaluate 'mapButton extrabutton' &bnum ' nextHistory'  increment &bnum   evaluate 'mapButton extrabutton' &bnum ' firstHistory'  increment &bnum   evaluate 'mapButton extrabutton' &bnum ' lastHistory'   evaluate 'echo buttons ' &argstring '-' &bnum ' set for history'
